I often hear the question, and have even asked it myself: “Does P90X work?”. Well for me, my P90X two week results speak for themselves, I have lost 7 pounds, reduced my body-fat percentage by 3.14%, lost 2.25″ on my waist measurement, and gained 1.9 pounds of lean body mass.
Yes, the first week of P90X was extremely difficult and I almost gave up more than once, but I kept pushing play on the videos and have followed the P90X diet plan to a T, other than making my own recovery drink and eating whole foods and not the recommended daily protein bar.
P90X Week 3 Chart of Chest & Back Exercise Results
Today’s workout was chest and back again, all of my numbers increased from week 2. I will not be doing this workout again until Week 9, instead the new workout will be chest, shoulders, and triceps for weeks 5,6, and 7.
Push-up variations are the primary exercise for the chest, in total I did 166 on week 1, 190 on week 2, and 212 on week 3. A 46 push-up increase in only three weeks does not seem to shabby to me.
MY P90X diet for the day is below:
Breakfast: whey, milk, apple, ham, egg whites
Pre-workout: whey protein
Post-workout: recovery drink
Lunch: tuna, whole wheat roll, low-fat cheese, vegetable medley
Snack: almonds, milk, whey, flax seeds
Snack: string cheese
Dinner: chicken, string beans
Pre-bedtime: cottage cheese
Tomorrow’s P90X workout is Plyometrics, looking forward to seeing how much easier the routine is from previous times.
